See you at Cal Day?

There really is something for everyone as UC Berkeley, AKA Cal, opens its doors to the families of the East Bay for Cal Day. My husband and second grader have their eyes on auditing another physics class while my kindergartner and toddler want to run around the grounds making slime and looking for doggies and birdies respectively.

Experience it for yourself this Saturday April 12th.

I know that’s a LOT to take in. And I only named a few dozen activities. You won’t get to it all, and that’s okay. Work with your child to pick a few events or classes that will best capture her imagination and attention span, then just go for it. See the full schedule of activities.
